Beware of Deceptive Solicitations from “Registered Agents”

Today the Nevada Secretary of State issued a press release warning companies about fraudulent solicitations from companies offering to update your entity and requesting filing fees.  Because many of these solicitations include official forms downloaded from the Secretary of State website, they appear to be official, though they’re not.  Often, by returning these forms with the requested payment, you will unknowingly change your registered agent and pay excess fees to do so.

If you have a Nevada entity and act as your own registered agent, the Secretary of State will notify you, by mail or by e-mail if you’ve requested it, when your licensing fees are due.  You can even renew your entity and pay licensing fees online for most companies, which saves you both time and money.
